Happy Little stampers Mixed Media Challenge March Challenge



I love Music, it makes me happy so this tag seems appropriate.

I used texture paste and a  sheet music stencil on a  tag .

Then I coloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks.

The  treble Clef is from Scrapmatts and I coloured that too with Distress Ink .

The word is from Kaszaz.

  I randomly stamped in black archival Ink with my Heidi Swapp sheet music stamp.

Scrap The Girls March 2019

"90's chicks" Be inspired by the movies of the 90s- pick your favourite movie


I was at a loss at first with this one but I took a leaf out of Gwen's book and picked my favourite 

outfit from the Movie - Clueless!

 Pink of course!!!

The dress that inspired me was for the wedding.



 Fortunately my daughter didn't have that look on her face!!



 Close ups...







I used Prima's Misty Rose Collection papers - SO gorgeous!!

Prima Misty Rose Butterflies and flowers too.

The die cut leaves and flowers were Laurel Wreath hot Foil Stamp and Laurel Wreath Die from

TODO and I used Couture Creations  Pink Foil and Hot Foil Machine.

The title was from 2Crafty and I hot foiled it in another Pink Foil from Couture Creations.

The stencil in the background was from Prima and I added Finnabair's Mica Pink to colour it.

Before it dried I sprinkled Finnabear diamond glitter on the paste- doesn't show up that well in the photo

but looks great on the page.

I will be interested to see how others are inspired by this month's mood board!

 There are sponsor's prizes available to the winners so have a go!

You might just be successful!

Happy Little Stampers February 2019 Mixed Media Challenge


the theme for this month's Mixed Media Challenge is Vintage

I used a 10 x 8 inch canvass Board from Kassazz.

The Vintage lady was from the 7 Gypsies Architectures  Paper Collection.


Firstly I used the Crafter's Workshop Damask stencil with Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss.

When it was dry I used the smooshing with plastic technique to apply Tim Holtz Distress Oxides- 

Iced Spruce, Hickory Smoke and Walnut Stain.

 The chipboard frame is "Bec's Frame" from 2Crafty.

I embossed it with Altenew Crisp embossing Powder - Platinum.

I also used Finnabair Art Ingredients Micro Beads in Bronze.

The flowers are Kaisercraft Blooms-Misti

The wordlet at the top is from one of my Cocoa Vanilla Studios Collection.

Not sure what this young lady would have been wishing for but I certainly wouldn't mind those 

pearls!!

Time Travel



"Time Traveller

Visit the pin up board over on Pinterest with pins about the 1940s and 1950's- Pin Up

Pick a pin or two for your inspiration and tell us what inspired you.

I was inspired by the pin of the lady holding up a muscled arm with the tattoo "Girl Power"

 My mum certainly had girl power!

 In 1946, she and two girl friends headed from Perth to the Eastern States for a working holiday 

( Mum told us jobs were everywhere!)

 I chose the color scheme from another pin- Pin up Party.


I'm thankful that this lovely woman was my mum, who among other things inspired me to get out there and see the world!!





I used Maja Design "Vintage Baby" papers, Dusty Attic Chipboard and 49 and Market Flowers.
I coloured the chipboard and title with Tsuniko Brilliance Dewdrop ink

looking forward to seeing what inspires you!

Scrap the Girls December 2018


Pick one Dress and be inspired by it!




I was inspired by the blue dress with Santa and the snowflakes on it.





I started with a wreath from Created by Gwen - sponsor for this month.

I painted it with Prima's Opal Magic Acrylic blue-violet paint and them pounced over it with white

gesso to give that snowy look!

The photo was from quite a few years ago but I thought it fit the theme really well!!

I backed the wreath with paper from Kaisercraft's Indigo Blue collection.

The word Wish was also from Created by Gwen and I backed that with Christmas paper from Maja

Designs( the  particular paper collection was from quite a few years ago ).

The reindeer were diecut( Sizzix) and I sprinkled them with glitter!

Lots of choice with this month's moodboard!!

Pick your favourite dress and go for it!!
